Independent Medical Evaluations (IME)


Trust Timewise Medical to provide expert independent medical evaluations with integrity.

Timewise Medical performs Independent Medical Evaluations (IMEs) in situations where an unbiased and objective assessment is important.

What is an Independent Medical Evaluation?

An IME is when a doctor examines an individual to help answer specific legal or administrative questions in situations such as:

  • Personal injury (civil litigation)
  • Workers' compensation
  • Occupational health and safety
  • Disability and veteran claims
  • Medical malpractice

What is an Independent Medical Evaluation?

A lawyer, insurance company or employer representative may request an IME when a neutral assessment of an injury or illness is needed to resolve questions about the medical condition. The goal of the IME is to get all parties on the same page.

What happens during an Independent Medical Evaluation?

Dr. Locketz will review the patient's medical records, ask them questions about their medical condition and treatment plan as well as their medical history. A physical examination and test can also be conducted.
